A Tradition of Changing Lives Since 1977

Safe Harbor of Aberdeen, SD


Originally formed in 1977, Safe Harbor began as a volunteer phone service providing information to women. Today Safe Harbor serves men, women and children by providing shelter and resources for making positive life choices.

Safe Harbor currently serves a seven county area in South Dakota. Each year the number of people Safe Harbor serves grows and today the organization has outgrown its current facilities.

Your generous support is needed to allow Safe Harbor to continue providing these essential services in northern South Dakota.

A new, modern facility has been designed that will allow Safe Harbor to shelter as many as 32 victims, a 150% increase to the current capacity. Additionally, the shelter has been designed to offer victims a comfortable, homey environment, making their transition an easier one.

Make your pledge to help maintain the facility. Print Pledge Form.

The new facility was completed in December of 2016.

With the generous help of our donors we were able to grow our endowment fund. We feel this serves as a sign of solidity and performance; it allows us to move beyond a short term focus to long term planning for financial stability. We believe that this will create a lasting legacy that will outlive, out give and out serve all of us.
